    Good Insurance, Lame Stock Options set Monthly at the end of the month instead of Yearly. Very low percentage of company ownership represented in ENTIRE non executive or mgmt employee pool. They dont offer options anymore either.

    Excellent health insurance at reasonable rates. 401k plan could use improvement IMO. Company car, PTO and other benefits are great!

    Best thing: relatively affordable for the level of coverage, a few different options for different coverage needs, great supplemental insurance options through Aflac, paid holidays in addition to vacation time and other PTO
    Worst thing: No 401K match currently, profit sharing only becomes vested 25% per year

    GREAT coverage - it cost a little more than I have paid in past but YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.

    Excellent benefits! Would be great it they offered 401(k) match or tuition reimbursement. However, health benefits are excellent along with the stocks that are offered with the job. The company offers paid maternity leave after 1 year of employment - how awesome is that?!

    Far too much of your salary is based on the Commissions which at times are hard to come-by, causing you undue stress financially.

    401k, medical, dental, vision, and vacation

    Heath insurance and dental seemed to be pretty good. They do give stock options and the ability to earn more based on performance and employee referrals
